A primary school has won a top prize recognising its investment in education.
Staff at Bourne Westfield Primary Academy in Westbourne Park, were thrilled to hear they’d been shortlisted in the outstanding progress primary school category at the Education Business Awards, and even more delighted to hear they’d won.
The school has been praised in recent months for making unprecedented improvement in all areas. Leadership, teaching, pupil achievement and behaviour and safety were all given a top rating in this year’s Ofsted report which recognised that headteacher, Elaine Radley had an aim of providing a ‘fun, caring and inspirational environment’ which paid off for pupils who benefited from motivated teachers and great activities, in particular sport and music.
Mrs Radley, who attended the ceremony with assistant headteacher Nick Chandler, said: “We were absolutely delighted we found that our school had been awarded first prize in this category.
“This is a magnificent achievement which once again recognises the unceasing hard work of our fantastic team of children, staff and governors here at Westfield, and I think it is fair to say that we are justifiably proud.”
